I have made accounts on some forums that seem quite lackluster. Quora can be fun, but it's not really enough. Reddit fails in this regard. I would love to find a forum for discussion that I can look forward to visiting on a daily basis. It can be a community/sub-forum of a larger scientific site.
I'm an undergraduate in Linguistics interested in the cognitive sciences, generally speaking. I'd like to learn and discuss with spirited members of the field.
The LinguistList has a selection of attractive mailing lists but not many of them fit the bill of active and relevant to my interests.
I plan on attending the LSI next Summer at UChicago. My objective is to get as involved and engaged with others in the field as possible, as I am currently located at a small liberal arts school with very few colleagues in linguistics – mostly working in a self-guided study format (tutorials and small, niche classes).
Thanks in advance! Perhaps, as a result of this inquiry, I will have the opportunity of joining some exciting discussions with some of you.
